Fresno State's Strategic Priorities: Priority Three
Align our physical and technological infrastructure to support a sustainable and welcoming campus environment.
We measure progress and success through the completion of projects and initiatives as prioritized by an updated physical master plan that supports the strategic plan and student success initiatives.
Campus Deferred Maintenance and Improvements
Since Fall 2013, Fresno State has invested a total of $119,178,828 in capital related projects, both new construction and capital renewal and renovation. Some notable projects include our updated electrical infrastructure, the Physical Therapy and Intercollegiate Athletic Building (PTIA), the Jordan Agricultural Research Center (JARC), lecture room and laboratory modernizations, HVAC updates, and repairs to underground utility infrastructure (i.e. hot water, natural gas, storm and sewer lines), the Student Health Center, and the North and South Gym Modernization.
In 2018-19 we are investing a total of $25,165,000 in major infrastructure projects, many of which are currently underway including the Ruiz Executive Classroom Building, a new equestrian locker room, Central Plant cooling tower replacement, landscape improvements and Bulldog Stadium ADA upgrades.
Our future facility project needs total approximately $225,083,000 million in replacing our central plant system, a new student union and modernizing Bulldog Stadium.
